The Consequences of Capitulation

Eugene Volokh forecasts the grim future of those who, like Comedy Central, capitulate to bullying blowhards without a fight (my bolds):

The consequence of this position is that the thugs win and people have more incentive to be thugs. There are lots of people out there who would very much like to get certain kind of material removed, whether religious or political. The more they see others winning, the more they will be likely to do the same. Behavior that gets rewarded gets repeated.
How true. And if you don't believe Prof. Volokh, just ask Richard Warman.
